HYDERABAD:  The ruling TRS utilised all the seven resolutions passed at its plenary held here on Friday to explain how it was fulfilling its poll promises gradually, besides hitting back at opposition parties for ‘making false charges.’ For instance, moving a resolution on ‘New policies and progressive steps’, B.Vinod Kumar, MP, accused the opposition of belittling creation of smaller districts.


“KCR is known for innovative thoughts and progressive ideas. During the Telangana movement, he not only envisioned a separate state but also division of the then big districts into smaller ones for  administrative convenience,” he said.

The MP claimed that smaller districts enabled the government to formulate tailor-made welfare schemes in each district in accordance with the socio-economic conditions in the district.


During a debate on the resolution relating to welfare schemes, party leaders tried to explain various welfare measures. “An amount of `40,000 crore in the state budget is allocated for welfare programmes. Its a record in the country,” Konda Surekha said.

The party plenary passed resolutions on subjects like welfare of BCs, SCs and STs, construction of 2BHK houses and government’s flagship programmes such as Mission Bhagiratha and Mission Kakatiya.
